If I get someone to add me as an AU on their 1990 AMEX account, will I be able get my own 2009 AMEX account backdated to 1990?
YMMV. There are multiple threads with people reporting that they've been able to have their accounts backdated to the date of the AU account, and there are people that were told by Amex that it doesn't work that way. Usually the situation is a little different though, it is someone being added as an AU and then applying for a new account as opposed to trying to backdate an existing account after being added as an AU.
